“This is an Emergency Action Notification directed by the president. Normal broadcasting will cease immediately.”

Well. OK. That announcement was a ways back in 1971. As a blast from the past you can check it out here: https://youtube.com/watch?v=Yu4r79l8P8I [Embed]

I didn't even know any of this was going on. I don't have an iphone anyway, I'm sticking with my basic flip phone.

PS: if there is ever any emergency alert or the power goes down, its SHTF time. Don't do anything rash or stupid, just hunker down board up and stay safe.

Yes. But also, being buoyant or being close to the shore and quickly able to paddle or boat outwardly, will allow one to avoid major strike zones. Islanders and other types, and pirates, know this.



Bitcoin's Blockchain Alledgedly Compromised By Govt/Banksters Warns /pol/ Anon Reader 01/12/2018 (Fri) 12:53:31 Id: 18e5db [Preview] No. 5398 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Hello, /pol/. I have lurked this board since the first exodus, and find that the information presented here is of great utility to the common man - which in turn is obviously why shills are rampant. It seems that while shareblue and other shill teams have lost the election, their attempts are nowhere near exhausted. While this may not be of grave concern to you, something very dark is happening on 4chan/biz that only the more adept users seem to be taking note of. I will try to keep my post as easy to digest as possible, but this is a lot of information that actually stems back to 8/pol/ and the help of a very based anon.

1. Pre-August 2017 - 8/pol anon makes post warning other anons about the implications of the User-Activated Soft Fork on Bitcoin's blockchain. This User-Activated Soft Fork activates software called Segregated Witness, a "scaling solution" funded by a company called Blockstream, who happens to be funded by the Bildeberg group and venture capital groups. This "network upgrade" initiates on August 8th 2017, and if all the miners do not follow the abundance of nodes on the network, a chain split results, which looks terrible for Bitcoin. Because of this, and previous arrangements that will benefit the miners later on, Segwit is activated. Right before activation, Roger Ver states that he does not agree with what SegWit claims to do for Bitcoin, and in turn hard forks the network in order to preserve Bitcoin's ecosystem before this radical upgrade took place.

WHAT IS SEGWIT?

Segregated Witness is a software upgrade that forces every-day users such as you and I off of the main blockchain. It does this using a fee-based "solution". Fees to broadcast to the main blockchain are raised x1000, going from less than $1 to $1000 EOY 2018. Instead, average users will go through Side-Chains - a patented software that allows banks to control their own centralized blockchains, this means that they choose the transactions that will and will not be allowed to be broadcasted to the main blockchain, while you as an inidividual must pay them a fee to even use the sidechains. This means that banks have control over who can and cannot send money, something that was previously not possible with Bitcoin.

2. Post-August 2017

Roger Ver splits the Bitcoin blockchain with his hardfork, resulting in a new Bitcoin offspring named "Bitcoin Cash (BCH)" - Bitcoin Cash follows the original roadmap laid out by Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto, while Bitcoin (BTC) is now a science project of Bitcoin Core and Blockstream. Nothing is too bad on 4chan, a lot of people talking shit about Bitcoin Cash, but from my perspective it seems to be pure ignorance rather than any actual shilling.

WHAT IS BITCOIN CASH?

Bitcoin Cash is the original idea of Bitcoin, laid out by the creator of Bitcoin, and using solutions that Satoshi Nakamoto explicitly states exist for the future of the currency. These solutions allow for Bitcoin to scale according to the amount of users on the network, without the high-fee-based scalability model. This means that regardless of whether you are rich or poor, if you have Bitcoin Cash (BCH) you can broadcast your transaction to the blockchain for close to nothing. Censorship-resistant money.

Maybe "investing" was not the right description in the case of Dimon as I wasn't referring to the stock market, which is a highly manipulated pump and dump scheme itself.

Dimon claims we shouldn't be buying physical gold or silver (while he himself hoards it)... Dimon claims we should not pay attention to cryptocurrency (while he himself is trying to exploit it, or corner it). All these bankers do the same thing, they'll tell the sheeple to buy up stocks and take out more loans but what do they do? They try consolidating real wealth, real markets for themselves.

As far as investors in the stock market casino, yes I hear some actually are exploiting the cryptocurrency marketplace to pump and dump it to make some easy cash. I could definitely see BTC being used for such a thing.

Lol, no I'm not rich, just middle class and damn lucky to be born during the Americana days where a man can work hard, make a decent living and retire.

As for household entry-point fortification, yes I've worked on some of my own DIY projects as a prepper. Got katybars for both my front and back doors, both which have long strike plates for the deadbolts to make them kick-proof. Fortified with fiberglass paneling too, and with the katy bars they are batter ram proof.

BTW, you can make your own katy bars from two metal axle brackets and a long steel pipe. Mount the axle brackets to each side of the door frame (make sure you level it properly) and have a strong steel pipe to slide through and you got yourself a DIY katy bar for under $40:

(These would be great axle brackets if they are actually metal)

As for window entry-points? I'm still working on that. For one window prototype I have four 10" bolts mounted to the side of the studs, two for each side which have been re-enforced with a second 2x4 and steel plating (utilizing some industrial shelving beams). My idea is to be able to prop up heavy plywood in front of my windows (from the inside of-course) and then use the 10" bolts, washers and nuts to hold the plywood sturdily into place (utilizing more heavy-duty steel shelving beams across the plywood to those bolts). I've been successful with one of the major window fortification prototype so far, so I'll be doing the rest of them like that this year. (Note that I can remove that plywood anytime I want to, and secure it right back on during a SHTF scenario which makes this so convenient).

US/Zion Foreign Policies Continue To Fail In Syria As Russia Knocks Out Drones And Kills Terrorist "Rebels" Reader 01/13/2018 (Sat) 19:09:18 Id: f7c1cc [Preview] No. 5452 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
As of this writing, the Russian military has had three of their bases attacked by drones. They destroyed six of them and captured another seven. The significance: the drones are of a quality that could not have been made by the ISIS “rebels,” and had to come from a technologically-advanced nation. The drones were multidirectional and able to be controlled by satellite through GPS coordinates.

[Schwarzenegger, in “Predator”]: “Heat seeker, Dillon. Pretty sophisticated for a bunch of half-assed mountain boys.”

Exactly. The U.S. (via Tillerson) released a statement that the U.S. was not involved in the drone strike and was unaware of who supplied the drones.

Not only does that not hold any water, but as it turns out, a U.S. intelligence aircraft was monitored in the theatre while these drone attacks were taking place.

Syria is still being hotly contested between Assad and the “rebels” who are none other than Al Qaeda that “morphed” several times to become the ISIS we all know and uphold in the manner of Emmanuel Goldstein, the bogeyman of Orwell’s “1984.”

The Russian military announced late on Friday that it has tracked down and eliminated a group of rebels involved in attacks on Russia's main base in Syria after mobilizing "all manpower and materiel of Russia’s multilevel military intelligence system in Syria" and especially its elite special forces troops.

The previous New Year's Eve attack was carried out by a small squad of insurgents armed with mortars who were able to kill two Russian servicemen while damaging up to seven aircraft at Khmeimim Airbase outside of Latakia, Syria and constitutes the single largest loss of Russian military hardware throughout the Syria campaign.

In response to both attacks, Russian special forces units were immediately mobilized and conducted targeted operations based on intelligence which identified the location of the initial mortar attacks. The Russian Defense Ministry indicated the full scope of its intelligence and special ops resources were brought to bear for the operation. According to Russia's TASS news:

TASS reports further of the drone depot:

Russia’s Krasnopol precision artillery munition has wiped out terrorists’ drone assembly and storage depot in the Syrian province of Idlib, according to the Defense Ministry. "The Russian military reconnaissance has uncovered a terrorist fixed-wing drone assembly and storage place in the province of Idlib. The depot has been destroyed by the Krasnopol precision artillery munition," the Defense Ministry said.

The Russian military said the drones came from the village of Muwazarra in Idlib, around 50 miles away, which makes Ahrar Al Sham or Hay’at Tahrir Al Sham the immediate culprit. Both groups, though blacklisted as terror organizations by the Pentagon, have received direct and indirect assistance by the CIA and allied intelligence services at various points over the course of the war, especially during the 2015 campaign to wrest Idlib city from the control of the Syrian government.

"We know who they were and how much they paid for that provocation," Putin had warned previously, while also claiming to be in possession of evidence demonstrating the rebels had outside help, presumably from external intelligence agencies.

The problem with Trump is his foreign policies. This is rooted with the fact he has granted the US military carte blanch authority to do whatever they please. If he really wants to "drain the swamp" that also means reigning in the our corrupt military industrial complex (which as you should be aware the Zionists have complete influence and control over).

Trump did the right thing backing off on Syria and allowing the Russians to defeat CIA-Mossad's backed 'moderate rebels' (aka ISIS/ISIL)... but shortly after that ordeal he granted the US military privilege to declare ANY WAR they desire, without his consent... AND THAT WAS FUCKING STUPID.

I like many of Trump's domestic policies while I absolutely despise his Neo-con/Zionist foreign policies.

He's a breath of fresh air if you are an American conservative (as far as his domestic policies)... but if you don't live in America there would be no reason to like him at all.



Like It Or Not: As Minimum Wage Rises, Expect Higher Prices Reader 01/12/2018 (Fri) 20:00:19 Id: 40e3f2 [Preview] No. 5426 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
A Subway sandwich shop in Seattle, Washington, is no longer offering the famous ‘Five Dollar Footlong’ special due to the city’s progressively socialist taxation policies, labor laws and minimum wage mandates.

Franchise owner David Jones posted a notice to customers explaining why his store was unable to participate in the national promotion for which the company has become well-known.

“The cost of doing business is Seattle is very high,” he wrote. “We are balancing the Highest Minimum Wage in the Nation, Paid Sick Leave, ACA, Secure Scheduling, Soda tax and much more.”

Jones assured customers he was seeking other avenues to offer discounts as quickly as possible.

Photos of the note went viral, prompting Subway execs to threaten Jones if he did not take it down.

“I got a very stern call last night letting me know that my life was going to get very ugly if I didn’t take the sign down,” Jones said. “I took the sign down this morning.”

He described the phone call to My Northwest as “threatening,” explaining that the “implicit message was they would attempt to terminate his franchise if he didn’t comply.”

Jones established himself as a vocal critic of the $15 minimum wage ahead of its passage, warning that he would be forced to transfer the added cost to his customers.

“We’ll all have to up prices,” said Jones. “It takes our full margin out. Most restaurants make less than 10 percent. This takes 10 percent out of our margin.”

News flash: they stopped offering it starting a few years ago, largely due to higher ingredient prices and inflation, nothing to do with "minimum wage increases".

This article just mentions one shop in Seattle, Washington. I'm sure it varies depending on locations and the amount of customers they get too. Its not all that crazy to assume some businesses would raise due to a "sugar tax" or wage increase though. They got to keep making profits somehow, thats why they are in business.

And people here scoffed when I said prices of goods and services would raise with minimum wage. Businesses always do this. Raising min. wage is not the solution. The economy needs to be fixed from Keynesian fuckery first and foremost. Doing this is like slapping a bandaid on a severed arm. You're still going to bleed to death.



Yes, Morons! Some Countries Are Shitholes! Reader 01/13/2018 (Sat) 19:35:34 Id: 189b86 [Preview] No. 5454 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
If some countries aren’t shitholes, then why do people flee to the US?

Notice how the anti-Trump corporate whore media is more concerned about defending the “honor” of shithole countries than defending American citizens' interests?

Globalists are scared about border wall funding because this would stop their deliberate destabilization policy.

Republicans are scared about securing the boarder because this would stop the exploitation of foreign slave labor in America.

Democrats are scared about deportation rates going up because this would cost them illegal votes which they rely on to win elections.

Lets make it clear, they don't care about those shithole countries, nor do they care about this shithole (THE shithole they are turning America into)!

I have an idea: perhaps the US President should allow a complete government shutdown, AND withdrawal from NAFTA, AND cancel DACA, until we get that damn border security AND the wall!



DOJ Unseals 11-Count Indictment Involving Clinton's Uranium One Scandal Reader 01/13/2018 (Sat) 18:01:14 Id: 096fc7 [Preview] No. 5450 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

The Department of Justice unsealed an 11-count indictment on Friday to a former DoD intelligence analyst-turned uranium transportation executive who stands accused of a bribery and money laundering scheme involving a Russian nuclear official connected to the Uranium One deal.

The indictment corroborates a November report by The Hill that an FBI mole deeply embedded in the Russian uranium industry had gathered extensive evidence of the scheme.

Mark Lambert, 54, of Mount Airy, Maryland, was charged with one count of conspiracy to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and to commit wire fraud, seven counts of violating the FCPA, two counts of wire fraud and one count of international promotion money laundering.

The charges stem from an alleged scheme to bribe Vadim Mikerin, a Russian official at JSC Techsnabexport (TENEX), a subsidiary of Russia’s State Atomic Energy Corporation and the sole supplier and exporter of Russian Federation uranium and uranium enrichment services to nuclear power companies worldwide, in order to secure contracts with TENEX.

According to the indictment, beginning at least as early as 2009 and continuing until October 2014, Lambert conspired with others at “Transportation Corporation A” to make corrupt and fraudulent bribery and kickback payments to offshore bank accounts associated with shell companies, at the direction of, and for the benefit of, a Russian official, Vadim Mikerin, in order to secure improper business advantages and obtain and retain business with TENEX. -DOJ

While the indictment lists Lambert's company as "Transportation Corporation A," a simple search reveals that Lambert is the co-President of DAHER-TLI, "the leading front end freight forwarding company dedicated to Nuclear Cargo," according to its website.

In 2012, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission sent a letter to Lambert with findings that TLI had exported plutonium "in excess of the maximum quantity and type applied for and licensed," and "exported Australian obligated material, which was not authorized under license conditions."

Prior to his 26 year tenure in the transportation industry - 20 of which have been with TLI, Mr. Lambert was an Arabic Linguist for the Navy for five years, and a Senior Intel Analyst for the Department of Defense (DoD) for three years.

Lambert also speaks fluent Arabic and Farsi (Persian), along with French and Italian.

The indictment against Lambert corroborates prior reporting by The Hill that an FBI mole buried deep within the Russian nuclear industry had gathered extensive evidence of a scheme involving bribes and kickbacks between Russian nuclear officials and TLI - which would have transported the U.S. uranium sold to Russia in the ’20 percent’ Uranium One deal.

“The Russians were compromising American contractors in the nuclear industry with kickbacks and extortion threats, all of which raised legitimate national security concerns. And none of that evidence got aired before the Obama administration made those decisions,” a person who worked on the case told The Hill, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retribution by U.S. or Russian officials."

Moby: US Govt Agents Asked Me to Spread Rumors About Trump and Russia Reader 01/13/2018 (Sat) 17:32:59 Id: 7c6829 [Preview] No. 5449 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
“They said, like, ‘Look, you have more of a social media following than any of us do, can you please post some of these things just in a way that… sort of put it out there.’”

Last February, following the Presidential inauguration of Donald Trump, Moby posted on social media claiming to have insider information on connections between the Trump administration and Russia. The producer/DJ said that “after talking to friends in DC,” he had allegedly learned that the Fusion GPS dossier was “100% real” and that the Russian government was “blackmailing” the president. Now, in a new interview with WFPK in Louisville, Kentucky, Moby has doubled down on his claims (as CoS points out).

Talking with WFPK's Kyle Meredith, Moby cited “active and former CIA agents” who were “truly concerned” about Trump’s collusion with Russia. “They were like, ‘This is the Manchurian Candidate, like [Putin] has a Russian agent as the President of the United States,’” he said. “So they passed on some information to me and they said, like, ‘Look, you have more of a social media following than any of us do, can you please post some of these things just in a way that … sort of put it out there.’”

He added, “It’s really disturbing and it’s going to get quite a lot darker. Like the depths of the Trump family in business and their involvement with organized crime, sponsored terrorism, Russian oligarchs, it’s really dark. I guess we should all, like, fasten our seat belts and hold on.”

Find the full interview below; the Trump discussion begins around the 8:00 mark: https://hooktube.com/watch?v=SHI6LfICx6k

Mark Zuckerberg’s latest Facebook post is proving expensive.

The co-founder of the world’s largest social-media business saw his fortune fall $3.3 billion Friday after he posted plans to censor users’ news feeds toward content from family and friends at the expense of material from media outlets and businesses.

Shares of Menlo Park, California-based Facebook tumbled 4.5 percent on Friday in New York, cutting Zuckerberg’s fortune to $74 billion on the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. He lost his place as the world’s fourth-richest person to Spanish retail billionaire Amancio Ortega.

Mexico Will Pay Us Back for the Wall Indirectly... Through NAFTA Renegotiations Reader 01/13/2018 (Sat) 02:02:31 Id: 377a8a [Preview] No. 5442 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
President Donald Trump restated his promise to make Mexico pay for his big wall on the Southern border, suggesting that they would do it by renegotiating NAFTA.

“They can pay for it indirectly through Nafta,” Trump said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal on Thursday. “We make a good deal on Nafta, and, say, I’m going to take a small percentage of that money and it’s going toward the wall. Guess what? Mexico’s paying.”

He insisted that NAFTA was a bad deal for the United States and said that “nothing’s changed” about his campaign promise to renegotiate the deal.

“I can tell you I think the American market would go up if I terminated Nafta and renegotiated a new deal,” Trump said.

He threatened to terminate NAFTA unless they could reach a renegotiation of the trade deal, but said he was waiting until after the presidential elections in Mexico.

“I understand that a lot of things are hard to negotiate prior to an election,” he said. “They have an election coming up fairly shortly. I understand that makes it a little bit difficult for them.”

As the debate over the wall continues, Democrats have mocked Trump for demanding American wall construction funding as part of a DACA deal.

“Mr. President you campaigned on a wall that Mexico would pay for. We’re waiting,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said.
